Job Description


Are you ready for the career you feel you've been preparing for since you became a professional?  Farmers Insurance is seeking individuals who desire more out of a career.  For the driven individual, there are few career choices that compare to running your own business and being your own boss.  So the question of why a career in Property & Casualty and Life Insurance Sales is less about what you do and more about who you are.  No matter where you are in your career, Farmers has a way for you to own your own agency - whether you're building one from scratch or buying an existing agency.  Be in business for yourself but not by yourself.  Join an industry leader, make a difference in your community, and we'll help you become successful.  

Farmers Agents enjoy: 

  • Some of the highest new business commissions and residuals in the industry
  • The flexibility of offering more than 60 products and services to their clients including personal lines, commercial lines, life insurance, and annuities.
  • The ability to sell the service commission rights of their book of business.
  • Highly recognized national branding campaigns.
  • Proven lead generation systems - we offer packages that include Direct Mailers, an optimized Agent website, up to 50% cost share for online leads and Farmers branded supplies, plus leads from and 1-800-FARMERS!
  • Company approved outplacement options for both personal and commercial lines.
